A renovation was recently finished at the Woodhaven Library.

The Woodhaven Library is opening a new chapter in its nearly 100-year history.

A $675,000 phase one renovation of the library was completed recently, updating many amenities.

On the first floor there is new lighting, carpeting, countertops, a new circulation desk, fresh painting, new computers and handicap accessible bathrooms. The library, which was opened in 1924 after original funding from steel industrialist Andrew Carnegie, was closed for three months during the renovation.

Future plans to upgrade the basement floor of the library are in the works. The children’s room will be renovated and there is a possibility of installing an elevator to allow more access.

The library is located on 85-41 Forest Parkway. It is open on weekdays, but not weekends.
